A not-so-candid shot of Wayne Rich captured by Steve Bissell

Muleskinner Blues

    “This was the first time this Winter that I was motivated enough to shoot.  I’ve been patiently waiting for the ole girl to cough up a few blue beauties, and finally, a few days ago, something surprisingly nice came out of her gift shop.  It was a real focused quickie and brought out some of her most dedicated lovers…and believe me, I’m talking pirates here, disguised as surfers, who just love to put a ‘Castlevanian’ bite on a newborn tube.  The Old Man and the Sea, Wayne was there, and a young sidekick named Killian showed up to ‘kill a few’.  Well, it was a blast for me.  I love the colors, the action, and most of all, I love my friends.  So…  Let the Winter games begin!”

I’m just one proud daughter. Thank you for sharing my dad’s photography, words and love of surfing with everyone. He is so talented!

Hi Steve,
Enjoyed the great images and the presentation. Sorry I missed it. I was out of commission for the past week. (Doubt if I was missed) You helped me “be there” through your talented eyes. You definitely captured The Man & The Smile.
